What Pyrrhus would say on entering Troy

Codex Palatinus 23, p.437

Texts

μόχθος ἐμοῦ γενετῆρος ἀμύμονος οὐ τέλος εὗρεν
αὐτὰρ ἐγὼ Τρώεσσι φόνον πάντεσσι κορύσσων
ἤλυθον: ἠνορέῃ γὰρ ὑπέρτερον εὖχος ἀείρω,
καὶ Πρίαμον βασιλῆα, καὶ οὓς προλέλοιπεν Ἀχιλλεύς,

πάντας ὁμοῦ κατὰ μῶλον ἐμὸν μένος οἶδεν ὀλέσσαι,
καὶ Τροίης πτολίεθρον ἀρήιον ἐξαλαπάξω,
καὶ Δαναοῖς δεκέτηρον ἐμὸν δόρυ μόχθον ἀνύσσει.
